"But it’s quite a bit wider — our estimate is that it’s almost 8 cms or 3 inches wider.

It’s also a little shorter than the current tall boy — around 4 cms or 1.5 inches." emmmm...

Well said. I was about to ask the same. The whole story looks like just cooked up, including the pic, which is quite evidently a Santro shell.

Another one from Hyundai? May be not really. The The "artist’s impression" belongs to TOI. So I would credit the whole "story" to some creative guy at TOI.

Or is there going to be a hot Hyundai hatch? Can't wait

Cut paste and that to with bad results.. Sigh.. Its a disgrace to photoshop. Guess TOI should hire our photoshop guys

As for the story maybe they will replace the santro with the kia picanto.


As for the post title. Then i dont think there has ever been a performance car from hyundai this side of crdi and the embera.. let alone a hatch
